Global Corporate Circle Working Session
Tuesday, 28 August 2007, 15:00-16:30
Metadata and Controlled Vocabularies
Presentation and discussion moderated by Joseph Busch, Taxonomy Strategies LLC
The Dublin Core specification provides for 15 elements, but only
minimal guidance on how to standardize the values used to populate
them. This session will present and discuss emerging best practices
for specifying and using controlled vocabularies in DC-compliant
information management applications. Topics to be addressed will
Tradeoffs and best practices around organization-dependent vs.
sharable common controlled vocabularies.
Tagging content for internal vs. external audiences using the same
metadata and controlled vocabularies.
When and how to map different taxonomies to each other.
Case studies from large organizations such as Oracle, Harvard Business
School Publications and NASA will be used to illustrate emerging
metadata and controlled vocabularies best practices. The presentation
will be followed by a discussion about the experiences in other
organizations. The session will be relevant to participants from any
organization—public, private or NGO—because these issues transend
corporations and apply to all large organizations and large,
heterogeneous information resources.
Joseph Busch is an authority in the field of information science, a
Past President of the American Society for Information Science and
